. >>> coming up, republicans are working to find hillary clinton guilty for the death in benghazi of ambassador chris stevens. my question, what did we learn in yesterday's hearings about what clinton did or didn't do or failed to do? let's figure out if there's anything here. >>> this week's arrest of an air force official in charge of a sexual assault program, how is that for irony? there's an epidemic we're seeing right now of sexual abuse in the military. can the military police its own rank? that's the big question in the white house today with that conference. >>> we finally got a take on elizabeth colbert busch's loss from the one person we most wanted to hear from, her brother, stephen colbert. >>> let me finish tonight with why the great american novel, "gatsby," is the great american novel. this is "hardball." the place for politics. >>> we have new polling on the special senate race up in massachusetts this june. let's check the "hardball" scoreboard. according to a whdh/suffolk university poll, ed markey has a big lead over republican gabriel gomez. markey 52%. gomez, 35%. a new pol

? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. many on the left are echoing hillary clinton's assertion that it doesn't really matter who screwed up, security and reportage in benghazi, libya. >> the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they would go kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? >> bill: mrs. clinton went on to say the important thing is that the killers be brought to justice and that kind of terror attack never happen again. but there is no question that the hearings yesterday were embarrassing for the obama administration and for hillary clinton. but immediately, the left wing spin found its way into the media. >> and why benghazi is generally emerged as a rallying cry for the president's opponents. when during the bush administration, there were 54 attacks on diplomatic targets that killed 13 americans. yet, garnered only three hearings on embassy security total. and zero outrage on fox. so why is this attack so different for republicans? >> bill: well, here i
clinton or president obama orchestrated a conspiracy to cover up some sort of malfeasance, but it does give republicans fuel to keep this story alive, and they are. throw in lindsey graham's call for mrs. clinton to testify before congress, and a new anti-hillary ad by karl rove, and you've got a growing political story. david corn is washington bureau chief for "mother jones" magazine and msnbc political analyst. danielle pletka is vice president of the american enterprise institute. we now know that the talking points used by susan rice were changed 12 times in a 24-hour period and the white house and state department were more involved in the process than previously revealed. the first draft of the talking points included a specific reference to, quote, islamic extremists with ties to al qaeda participating in the attack. that was eventually scrubbed. also, there was this paragraph as abc reported today. "the agency has produced numerous pieces on the threat of extremists linked to al qaeda in benghazi and eastern libya. these noted that since april, there have been at least five ot
they really used to love to hate. former secretary of state hillary clinton. the same hearing room that featured political wrangling over the years on witwater, house republicans held a charged congressional hearing on the mbenbenghazi attacks. 22 year career diplomat gregory hicks stationed at the embassy in tripoli that night gave a rifting account of the night four americans were killed which began with his attempts to reach ambassador chris stevens on the phone. >> i got the ambassador on the other end. he said, greg, we're under attack. about 3:00 a.m., i received a call from the prime minister of libya. i think it's the saddest phone call i've ever had in my life. and he told me that ambassador stevens had passed away. >> hicks also testified that as the attack continued with a second assault on a nearby cia outpost, which was not known to be cia at the time, he and a defense attache begged for airport. the pentagon refused. >> lieutenant colonel gibson was furious. i had told him to go bring our people home. that's what he wanted to do. i will quote lieutenant colonel gibson
jones to you, counsel for hillary clinton, to victoria nuland, to mr. kennedy, and i'm going to read from it. when he said his government suspected former gadhafi regime elements carried out the attack attacks, i told him that the group that conducted the attacks ansar al-shariah, is affiliated with islamic terrorists. >> on september 14, a document published, likewise stated, we do know that islamic extremists with ties to al-qaeda participated in the attack. yet rice and other senior u.s. officials far from putting out every piece of information as they got it, continued to press the false narrative. >> our initial information and that includes all information -- we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a preplanned or premeditated attack. >> i wish i could sit here today and tell you that within days, within a week, by september 20 when we came up here we had a clear picture. we did not have a clear picture. >> another newly unveiled e-mail was sent on 9-11 by mark thompson, the operations officer at the state department counterterrorism bureau with the u.s. an
and secretary of state clinton do anything wrong? >> did she ask you about the cause of the attack? >> i don't recall that being part of the conversation. will. >> bill: tonight. we have straight talk about benghazi. also, upcoming on the factor, there is a verdict in the jodi arias murder trial. >> guilty. >> bill: and the latest on that horrendous kidnapping in cleveland. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. very busy news day. we'll have analysis of the jodi arias verdict. she was found guilty of first degree murder. also the latest on the horrendous cleveland kidnapping case. but, first, our lead story tonight the benghazi hearings in washington today. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. there is no question, no question at all that the u.s.a. did not protect its ambassador to libya christopher stephens and three other americans who were murdered by terrorists in benghazi last september 11th. so today, the house oversight committee tried to find out exactly who
with new state department witnesses they say will undercut hillary clinton's explanation of what went wrong in benghazi. the attack on the benghazi mission started around 9:40 p.m. by 3:00 in the morning ambassador chris stevens and information officer sean smith were dead. but two other americans, former navy seals working as security contractors, did not die until a second full assault at 5:15 a.m. on a cia annex several miles away. six special forces commandos flew in from tripoli but couldn't stop the onslaught. now house republicans have released an interview with gregory hicks, at the time the deputy chief of missions, who said he called for military help from four more special forces operatives in tripoli but was overruled. hicks, a diplomat, not a military officer, said i believe if we had been able to scramble a fighter or aircraft or two over benghazi as quickly as possible after the attack commenced there would not have been a mortar attack on the annex in the morning because i believe the libyans would have split. the pentagon said the commandos had to stay and defend the embass
reviewing what was said on tap toll hill yesterday it's clear that then secretary of state hillary clinton played a very key role in what i believe was an administration-wide national security coverup. according to the whistleblowers she is to blame for not only sending ambassador stevens to the unsafe city of benghazi, but also for the poor security conditions at the consulate. watch this. >> mr. nordstrom, who has the authority to place personnel this a facility that does not mean the minimum osbt standards? >> it's my understanding that since we were the sole occupats of both of these facilities, benghazi and tripoli, the only person who could grant waivers or exceptions to those was the secretary of state. >> mr. hicks, why was ambassador stevens headed to benghazi? there were a lot of security issues and concerns, and mr. nordstrom listed them in numerous reports leading up to his trip there. why was the ambassador headed there? >> according to chris, secretary clinton wanted benghazi converted into a permanent constituent post. >> you just heard about two of the very costly miss step
involvement in those revisions was very minor. plying the state department under hillary clinton was the primary editing force. the state says they didn't want to highlight al qaeda involvement because it might impede the investigation. a fairly incredible assertion. what jay carney attempted to do today was convince the world that there was initial confusion about who attacked the american ambassador and killed him and that the white house was acting responsibly in avoiding placing direct blame. the fact remains that ambassador rice did place blame for the attack on the anti-islamic video released in the u.s.a. that was her primary focus. so summing up, no admission of wrongdoing by the obama administration. charges that the benghazi controversy is politically motivated and no release of emails that might clarify the situation the white house saying some congress people have seen them and that's all that's necessary. and that's the memo. now, for the top story tonight. let's bring in abc news correspondent jonathan karl who is investigating the story. first of all, about jay car
conflicting evidence from hillary clinton over what really happened the night four americans were killed in benghazi, next. >>> republicans in congress are gearing up for a new set of hearings this week on the benghazi consulate attack. that claimed four u.s. lives. they say new state department witnesses will undercut hillary clinton's explanation of what went wrong. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell, has that story for us. >> reporter: the attack on the benghazi mission started around 9:40 p.m. by 3:00 in the morning ambassador chris stevens and information officer sean smith were dead. two other americans former navy s.e.a.l.s working as security contractors did not die until a second full assault at 5:15 a.m. on a cia annex several miles away. six special forces commandos flew in from tripoli but couldn't stop the onslaught. house republicans released an interview with gregory hicks the deputy chief of mission at the time and said he called for military help from four more special forces operatives in tripoli but was overruled. hicks a diplomat not a military
department was concern thursday should be a lawyer present at all time. >> hillary clinton's former secretary of state, clinton's chief of staff, cheryl mills, who some of us remember from the -- with bill clinton was with the person who called hicks, according to his testimony and said "do not talk alone to a member of congress." >> yeah. and afterwards he also felt, as he put it, a chill from beth joan, another close aide to secretary clinton. you get a sense that here you have a kind of a failing surrounding secretary clinton for whom the first priority is make sure that our political bosses aren't touched in any way by a serious -- >> wait a minute. do you blame them? it's the middle of a presidential election -- >> yes, i do blame them. >> why? >> they're not campaign officials, they're state department officials, and they're four dead american. that's a serious problem. that's an inability to separate their role as partisans and as -- as officials of the u.s. government. >> well, bear in mind, as well, that that night greg hicks or his aide spoke to the state department, describing what
, of secretary of state clenton? clinton? do you asigh blame specifically? that administration. in tell us who is the object of your wrath? >> i don't want to it accuse anybody. i do have my suspicions and i do think that i know -- in fact, i know what happened pretty much. i just want somebody to admit it and i don't want them to do this to anybody else mostly. i want our people to be safe when they go to these places that are very, very dangerous they he should have the protection that is necessary to keep them alive. and to do their job. and that hasn't happened. and i'm afraid the people that -- sean is gone but there is others that come after him. i want them to be safe. and that can't be safe if it the same people are in charge. >> geraldo: i have to leave you there. thank you so much for coming on. i really appreciate it. >> you're welcome. >> geraldo: and benghazigate goes from simmer to boil we will hear from congress, former not bad. this tree has deep roots, strong limbs... things are pched and not pinned. nicely done. thboys love it. they are up there day and night. well that might
hillary clinton should be subpoenaed if necessary. to guy benson on the political fallout. do you think this spoils or affects hillary clinton's chances in 2016? >> well, stewart, i think it's very important to point out, in are and foremost, that the hearings yesterday were not about politics. they were not about hillary clinton and they were certainly not about 2016. the republicans could have show-boated and done some grand standing and they didn't. they asked focused questions and got some real new, usable, interesting, relevant information. so, the people who were bringing up hillary clinton and the politics and the people still who keep focusing on 2016, are democrats, primarily, who accuse republicans of politicizing the issue but they themselves are politicizing it, and to look at benghazi through the lens of 2016, an election three and a half years away, is insulting. it suggests that there are not legitimate questions remaining about, for instance, gosh, eight months later why have there been no arrest? why was there such lax security in a dangerous police should why were ther
obamacare. >>> meanwhile, as hillary clinton feels increased heat over benghazi, there's a whole bunch of other 2016 possibilities making their own headlines in key states on big issues and in grand fashion. it's our friday roundup of the presidential posturing, coming up on the show. >>> community concerns. local officials hear from people in the neighborhood with a shocking decade long abductions took place. the open forum comes as prosecutors say they may seek the death penalty for ariel castro. we'll have all the latest from cleveland this hour. >>> good morning from islam bad, pakistan. it's the day before election day, friday, may 10th, 2013. this "the daily rundown" and here's chuck todd. >> you know, if it's saturday somebody's voting somewhere. right? thanks for sending that greeting all the way from islamabad. as you know, there are some elections going on there. let's get to my first reads of the morning. in 2013, big story lines dominating washington as far as issue agendas will be a combination of three things. first, never to be able to begin budget talks. in the 30 plus

. and clinton was re-elected, saying he's not going to get anything done for the rest of his term. when president bush lost the house and the senate in 2006, it with us the same thing. look, there's not a lot of legislation that's going to happen. probably between now and 2014. the president has enormous influence in a lot of places outside of legislation. and the idea that anybody has as much constitutional power as the president of united states, is irrelevant -- >> and mary matalin, he's more popular than republicans in congress. >> so what? that's irrelevant. he single-handedly wiped out his congressional majority in the last midterm. he set in place republican dominance at the state level for decades because we picked up so many -- 7,000 legislators and 30 governors, in control of the legislatures in the states, which is the bench -- back bench for rising stars. this cycle, he's going to wipe out his senate, if not the majority. certainly, the critical mass of the majority. >> republicans should have never lost seats in the senate in the last election. and they did. and now, they'r
and forth to begin, as events warrant, of course. you know, good question, will benghazi dog hillary clinton if and when she runs for president? yesterday's congressional hearing into the attacks was any indication, republicans are not going to let the issue go. they say the white house has tried to block the truth from coming out and the former secretary of state helped them do that. the shift was to clinton, most of the revelations, if they are that, had to do with what hillary knew and what she did or didn't do during the attacks. for example, she called the embassy on the night of the attacks and spoke with gregory hicks. hicks also said that clinton's chief of staff tried to intimidate him after he spoke with a congressman about the attacks without a state department lawyer present. my question, what kind of picture does this all add up to? lisa myers and jeremy peters for "the new york times." so we've got two good people here. what did we learn yesterday that seems to be what you might call exposing the secretary of state, something that brings open to further questioning? lisa? >> th

was the great big benghazi hearing. you know, this was the one that was going to destroy hillary clinton, destroy barack obama. mike huckabee said ahead of time that after this hearing president obama would never complete his second term. he would be driven out of the white house. lindsey graham said the dam is going to break on benghazi. darrell issa himself said this testimony would be very damaging to hillary clinton and disgrace commentator dick morris even said this was the beginning of the end for obama and for hillary clinton and they had the big hearing and nothing happened. it was a big bomb and we'll tell you why. that and a whole lot more coming up next on current tv. >> if you believe in state's rights but still support the drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the day. >> do you think that there is any chance we'll see this president even say the words "carbon tax"? >> with an open mind... >> has the time finally come for real immigration reform? >> ...and a distinctly satirical point of view. >> but you mentioned "great leadership" so i want
things from the testimony. we learned that officials like hillary clinton anyhow it was a planned and orchesterated attack and not a reaction to a youtubero. multiple orders were begin to the middle. we learned that our second in command in libya was demoted to a desk job when he did. the so- called accountability revow board awn a reference from the white white and state department to exonerate never called key witnesses and didn't have a stenograpper present in the questioning. while ambassador ste fens was begging for more skourt no one was held accountable. we learned it was explained all away and changed 11 times with 12 different versions. we learned that the libyan government was so ofended that we contradicted the report that it was terrorism that they delayed the fbi for over two weeks and sadly, we learned that our people in libya begged for help and we abandoned them. we went from a policy of no man left behind to one no excuse and left alone. democrats say it is a partisan witch hunt. and after tucson and a urora and sandy hook, we know that the democrats would never t
it incredible. look at the whole situation -- we're talk act, including my colleague, when secretary clinton and the state department asked for additional funding for embassy security, they all voted no. they all voted no. >> wait, we're getting a little off -- >> come on now. you already admitted to it on cnn. >> i understand there's an issue about security. it's a little bit off the track. i want to try to stay on course here. >> this is the point. they're complaining about a lack of security at the embassies after they voted against the funding for security at the embassies. that's what they're complaining about. a lack of security at the embassies when they all voted to cut $500 million. is that not related? >> the cfo has said in an e-mail -- the chief financial officer for the state department said that finances had nothing to do with the decisions about funding at the facility. the security personnel were paid from the pentagon budget. they weren't paid from the state department budget. this is a facade. it's a distraction. there are four people dead here, chris. >> and i want to talk
: getting to the bottom of benghazi. one witness prepares to point the finger of blame at hillary clinton. this is "special report." >> bret: good evening. i'm bret baier. although still a day and a half away, wednesday's congressional hearing on the benghazi terror attack is shaping up as a direct assault on the obama administration's handling of the crisis and could reverberate into the next presidential campaign. much of the verbal are a tier larry will be directed at former secretary of state and perspective presidential candidate hillary clinton. chief washington correspondent james rosen tells us what we know right now. >> i directed our response from the state department and state in close contact with officials from across our government. >> in the early hours of the benghazi crisis, a state department whistleblower will soon tell congress secretary clinton and under secretary of state for management kennedy tried to cut the department own department bureau out of the reporting and decision-making. >> what would have been her motivation for doing that. >> if you wanted it so seem
. i don't want to do any speculation. all right? expect that hillary clinton, first of all will be damaged by tomorrow's testimony? >> well, i think based on what we know so far, the preliminary stuff we have gotten as to what these whistle blowers behalf say tomorrow, i think hillary clinton is, in fact, a central figure in the scandal, if not the central figure in the scandal. three quick reasons. one, she, or her department, turned down repeated requests for security leading up to the attack even though benghazi was a long-time terrorist strong hold. repeated attempts against our compound there before the september 11th attack. secondly on the night of the attack, there is word from one of these whistle blowers, bill, that she actually cut out the state department's counter terrorism unit. they deny that. we will see what the testimony. >> bill: by cut out she didn't keep them informed. >> she actively eliminated them from the chain of information and command. that would be huge. and then she was awol the rest of the night when americans were under fire. and the third po
and the explanation we were given by president obama and then secretary of state hillary clinton. >> we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with with. >> you had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character who is extremely offensive video directed at muhammed and islam extremists and terrorists, used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies including the consulate in libya. >> but here's what gregory hicks, the second highest ranking official on the ground at the time told congress yesterday. >> do you report to nip in washington within the first couple of days that flfs there a protest in connection to a youtube video? >> the only report that our mission made through every channel was that there had been an attack on a consulate. >> so at this table, we assumed all the things we found out yesterday to be true, but we were giving people buckets full of the benefit of the doubt. now they don't deserve that any more, eric. what do you think? >> i think there are two time line
as required by law were appointed by secretary clinton and cochaired the accountability review board investigation. we asked them to testify about their investigations and findings. they refused and our minority said nothing. >> ambassador thomas pigering cochaired that review board and joins us from the state department. i wanted to clear up, first of all, whether or not you are willing to testify, contrary to what chairman issa has claimed. >> yes, i'm willing to testify. i made that clear yesterday. the white house i understand made that clear to mr. issa. he decline. i don't know the reasons for that, made some statement about perhaps sometime later we could come, but i was very interested in being there, because i thought the testimony this morning might be important with respect to the accountability review board and its work. >> you interrued gregory hicks who testified emotionally today, the deputy chief of mission, the last person who we know of to speak to ambassador stevens, and stevens said to him on the phone we are under attack. he still believes, according to the defen
into what was happening in september. >> what does this say about secretary of state hillary clinton's involvement? >> no explicit reference to her. there is one intriguing part where a representative of the state department said the building leadership referring to the state department was still not pleased when some changes were made, not enough in her estimation. we don't know that hillary clinton was at all directly involved. there seemed to be kind of a turning point on a saturday morning meeting. this would have been september 15th, i believe, where the deputies of these agencies, key officials were in the white house for a meeting. we don't have the specifics of notes on that. what we have been told is that from the cia, mike did handwritten notes changing the talking points with a group working on those. all of the implications are if the state department was wanting some changes, did that rise to hillary clinton's 11? that's one of the question that some in congress want to know and it is one of the political issues the white house has to deal with now. >> kelly o'donnell, l
